    Good luck Nelly, but you need to be doing Chins or Pulldowns for your back.

    Do you suggest that I take out Deadlifts or Barbbell Rows or just add a 4th exercise (Pulldowns)?

    15 minutes of using my stepper at home.

    -------------

    Going to start in the gym after Labour day weekend. My workouts will be all over the map since I work 12 hour shifts...2 days on and 2 days off. I hope I will manage...just take it one day at a time.

    Thanks for the welcome and help.

    Still Here

    Hey guys,

    I'm still going to start my workouts and keep my journal up-to-date. I had unexpected things happen to me last weekend. First, my mom ended up in the hospitial and wasn't to sure if she was going to make it but she is doing better...it will take 3-12 months to recover...but still not out of the woods yet. She has Non-Hodgins and she is on her second treatment cycle. Going to take it one day at a time. Then I hear that my bro was in an accident. He is okay - but the car isn't...$3000 in damages Oh and the GF! But thats another story! So those 3 took over me starting my training. I am definiatly starting on Monday the 8th!! I will do my training first thing in the morning!

    Hopfully I can get measured up and take a few pics this week.

    Sorry to hear about your family troubles. Keep your head up. Everything will work out for the best. As far as workouts do what you can but remember family comes first.

    Then hit it hard when everything settles down.

    I'd stick with the rep range that you are doing now. I've been having pretty good results with sticking with the lower rep range and heavy weights while cutting. I am trying to preserve as much of my muscle that I can while cutting. IMO it's all about cardio and diet to get lean.

    JustinF - Thanks for the encouragement!! I do my cardio on the elliptical. Procor must be the brand name.

    Cardio - 20 minutes on the elliptical - Level 3.

    Nothing wrong with doing the leg press instead of the hack squat. Pretty good substitute IMO.

    Everything's looking good man! How's the diet?

I'll just add lots of protein to my diet and I MUST start drinking my 12 cup a water a day!!!
